The explanations and solutions to psychological problems have varied throughout history. In recent decades, however, an ideology characterized by social inclusion and autonomy has emerged where the key element has been to make individuals with mental health problems a part of the community rather than to screen them from the rest of society. This essay analyzes the work of five community-based services that in different ways encounter individuals with mental health problems, on the basis of two models of psychiatric rehabilitation: social skills training and social support. Linked to the work of these places, several factors of well-being can be observed. The biggest obstacles in the social inclusion of individuals with mental health problems seem to be related to 1)general negative attitudes, of which negative media coverage plays a big part and 2) structural economical and general social difficulties in becoming a part of society nowadays.
